Daniel Radcliffe was a guest on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, to promote his latest movie "Horns."  During the conversation, Fallon points out that Radcliffe is a huge music fan. More specifically, Radcliffe is a big fan of rap, and he spends time learning complicated lyrics -- the more difficult the better.

Fallon then asks if Radcliffe knows all the lyrics to Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics."
